Outfit: Blue and Fuchsia



Hello! Last week was one of the slowest ever. I began working my second job and trying to juggle two separate schedules is taking its toll so far. I'm just exhausted! I figured I could have at least a day to recuperate, but I worked all day Saturday too and didn't get much downtime on Sunday either. Why is work a thing anyway? Like can't we just all agree it stinks and move on to things that we actually enjoy doing? Like a job snuggling with cats all day long, or testing pints of ice cream for quality assurance-why aren't there more of those jobs out there huh?!



















I hope your week is swell! If you follow me on instagram you saw that Sean bought me a record player/radio console that is absolutely GORGEOUS. We had seen it in an antique store about a week ago and I just fell in love with it. I figured it was one of those things I would maybe find a few years down the road, but not something we could get now. Sean surprised me though! I just have a couple of Christmas albums that he bought me along with one Styx record that was inside the console. I definitely need to go record shopping now! I'm so excited to scour some classic finds as well as buy some newer albums on vinyl too. We have to do a bit of work as the player produces a loud buzz when played.  Sean thinks he just needs to replace the capacitors though and the buzzing will stop. I'm so glad I have a tech wizard for a husband! Anyway, that is what I will be up to in my downtime this week. How about you?

God Bless!

Inspiration: Shirley Temple

This week's inspiration is Shirley Temple again! Last time I posted photos of her it was from a specific film. This time I just found some of my favorite style photos of hers and mostly I'm just envious of her gorgeous hair! The sweaters, blouses, and suit sets are fantastic too. Enjoy! 




  




  



This was my very favorite picture of her that I found. She just looks so glamorous and flawless!



God Bless!

Outfit: Pumpkin Festival


Hey there! Sean and I went to the pumpkin festival this weekend, so of course there is photo proof of the outing. It was a bit chilly with the wind, so I bundled up a bit in a plaid blazer and scarf. It was a blast!
















God Bless!

Outfit: 1940's Red and Black Dress



Oh, hello! It has been a week since I last posted. My computer still has a virus, but Sean got it so that I can at least work on it again for the time being until he needs to rebuild my machine. I will use whatever time I have to squeak in a post!
So, life stuff! I got a new part time job. I will still be working at my Kid's Inc. Afterschool Program job teaching  k-5 grade students, but I added a second job I will be working in the mornings (and some weekends :P ). The job is at our Washington Pavilion science center. The Pavilion is home to many areas of business. There are a bunch of different departments for music, theatre, science, etc. They bring in shows for our community and have a cinedome as well. I even found out they can house up to three weddings at a time too! Craziness...
Anyway! I will be working for the time being in the childrens' science center teaching groups of kids/families at the different exhibits. I may even have to handle reptiles/snakes, and do some dissections (eeep!). At the moment I am completely stressing out (as I tend to do) because so far my schedules are completely not meshing together and I'm worried that I'll end up working 6 days a week every week and not getting anything done around the house, plus dealing with church stuff, 5k training, and having some sort of a social life PLUS trying to run an Etsy shop.
If that run on sentence wasn't enough to convince you I'm stressed, nothing will be enough.
Le sigh.
I am hoping that this job will lead to other opportunities though, like getting a job with the Pavilion's theatre department and turning that into a full-time gig once my elementary school closes at the end of this school year. So may changes happening!








Sorry for the horribly over-exposed photos! These were taken on a super sunny and windy day. I still need to learn how to better shoot in manual so that I can avoid this type of thing. Even if I learned I would have to teach husband and goodness knows how well that would go over. Photography is not really that man's passion.






Alright cats, have a blessed week, ok? Hopefully I will have time to post more than once this week, but we will see :)

God Bless,
KJA
